Default The work UFWDA is doing at Cape Hatteras National Seashore will impact accessibility

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Magnitude of Cape Hatteras National Seashore Negotiated Rulemaking

Date: February 26, 2009
Contact: Carla Boucher

The work UFWDA is doing at Cape Hatteras National Seashore will impact accessibility of other National Park Service units in the years to come.

The following units are currently undertaking ORV rulemaking: Cape Lookout National Seashore (NC), Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (AK), Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (UT), Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (MI).

The project at Cape Hatteras National Seashore will also be utilized by the environmental and species conservation organizations to demand a change in protections measure across all NPS units where ORV use is permitted based upon the natural resource management decisions arising from the ORV rulemaking. For example, if Cape Hatteras National Seashore species management plan, which is encompassed as part of the ORV rulemaking, continues to prohibit the relocation of loggerhead turtle nests, despite a 40% nest loss due to natural storm events, nest removal at other units such as Padre Island in Texas will be in serious jeopardy. If nests relocation decisions are changed at Padre Island and the number of hatchlings decreases as a result, Padre Island would surely enact harsher ORV driving restrictions as a result.
